's a long standing syria through the decline or democrat myself of the assad regime, which i think is inevitable, will be a serious blow to iran. >> so if you have washington, sir, on one side of the scale and tehran on the other, who does baghdad more closely align with? >> well, our hope is, of course, that it will be a truly democratic regime which will be primarily loyal to the interests of the people in iraq and that their views will be consistent with others in supporting and strengthening democratic institutions. but as with many of the other countries in the middle east, there are a whole series of conflicting interests there and it will play out over a long period of time. but our interest is in democratic institutions, democratic societies who will serve their people and not be so much interested in the kinds of conflicts that have raged for so long in that region. >> you mentioned your hopes are for the inevitable assad regime there in syria. but today one of the national coalition, the head of that resigned. he was the key u.s. ally among the rebels. how big of a blow i
press has said they use cyprus banks to fund the assad regime. the other thing i wanted to mention, larry, since the beginning of the year, putin has wanted to reduce the exposure of russian oil garbages abroad and actually started since february to use cyprus a little bit, yes. i think -- less. they prefer the leathnetherland prove some of their money. and putin has wanted to exempt cyprus from some of this -- to protect cyprus as a haven, even as some of his cronies are moving their money further west, anticipating some kind of disaster, just as has happened, in fact. so they're not entirely taken by surprise. >> no. i don't think anybody is. i mean, i think everybody knew this was going to happen. and it's happening. >> but, larry, the bottom line is, the risk of allowing a run on the cypriot banks is so significant, that it's worth it to let russia come in. >> i agree. >> and put $5 billion down. and basically stabilize the situation, rather than have it be done some other way, which would involve the euro. >> i don't see how they can avoid a run oppose on the banks, one way or
at this point. malaki's focus is not having a regime in syria. our focus is not allowing assad to continue to exist. >> that's right. the shia regime doesn't want to see a sunni regime in syria. iran wants to maintain assad's power and iran is shipping weapons through iraq to syria. many people say it's those weapons and a lot of the training coming from iran that is propping up the aassad regime in syria. if we can cut that off, we might be able to cut off the weapons propping up in the assad regime. we can't get those flights to land, be inspected. if jordan has intelligence there's weapons on those flights we can't cut it off. it is a damned shame because we spent all that time, blood in iraq, we should have that type of relationship where we can stop that. instead we can't. >>brian: secretary of state condoleezza told us here that status agreement was written to be renegotiation before it was up. if that was renegotiated successfully we would have had presence in the region and you could argue there would not be the intertribal strife they're witnessing right now. therefore, we would h
